The 1901 Census offers a rich source of information about Canada and Canadians at the turn of the 20th Century. Through this research tool you can access digitized images of the original census returns, which record age, nationality, religion, profession, income, education, etc for every single resident of Canada on 31 March 1901.

This tool allows researchers to search by geographic location only. As this is not a nominally-indexed database, it is not searchable by family name. The digital images within this database are copies of the original microfilm records held by Library and Archives of Canada. The information on these images can be used to prepare family histories, the history of towns and villages, research immigration trends and a great deal more. See what you can discover!

 
The 1901 Census for England & Wales provides details of individuals living in 1901, including where they lived, who else lived there, their occupation and age. You can search by a person's name or by an address. This fully indexed site also allows you to search by institutions and vessels and provides fascinating insights for genealogists, historians and researchers.
